One of my family’s sandwich favorites, crispy apple, sharp cheese, fresh spinach and a touch of Swedish style mustard, yum!

2 pieces of bread

2-3 slices of smoked ham

Sharp cheese (I prefer Västerbotten)

1 red crisp apple

Fresh spinach

Green onion

Whipped cream cheese

Spicy Mustard, (horseradish-honey style)


Start by giving the two pieces of bread a good thick layer of cream cheese.

On one side you put freshly washed spinach (pat dry and break off the stems), use at least 4-5 leaves. Chop up a handful of green onion and put that on top of the cream cheese on the other slice of bread. Now on top of the fresh green spinach add two to three good sized slices of smoked ham, slather the top piece with the spicy mustard. Then over to the slice with cream cheese and onion, now its time for the sharp cheese, don’t be stingy, 4-5 bigger slices at least, and then you cut thin slices of the red apple and place that on top of the cheese, add enough apple slices so when you bite into the sandwich you will feel a good crunch. With a swift move put the two pieces together. Cut the sandwich diagonally so that you get two triangles.  Serve the sandwich with some potato chips with some good crunch and maybe a few red grapes and a glass of you favorite bubble water, enjoy!
